Melissa & Benjamin in Chicago, IL

The Bride Melissa Rutten, 28, a public relations consultant The Groom Benjamin Bradford, 33, an attorney at Jenner & Block The Date September 4 Without a specific color palette or theme in mind, Melissa and Benjamin took inspiration from the JW Marriott’s traditional, neutral-colored ballroom and chose to use mostly dreamy whites and ivories mixed with a few seasonal colors like plum, green and magenta. Ornate place settings and cloud-like draping created an elegant and formal atmosphere, while vivid purple and yellow lighting lent a club-like edge to the party.
